Swiss Miss is a classic for a reason. Whenever we're craving a cup of cocoa — especially during the fall and winter months — we know we can depend on the brand. Even if we're looking for a more unique twist on cocoa, Swiss Miss has got it covered with various chocolate, peppermint, and pumpkin spice flavors. However, the brand's latest release may take the cake.

According to Best Products, Swiss Miss just launched a new salted caramel hot cocoa mix. "Combining chocolatey cocoa and smooth caramel flavor, this Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Mix creates a rich, indulgent taste to sip and savor," reads the product's description on the Target website. There, an eight-pack can be purchased for $2.79.
While we love salted caramel during colder months, we also won't say no to this flavor at any time of the year. In particular, we imagine that the Swiss Miss salted caramel cocoa would taste great with ice, making it perfect for a hot summer day.
In addition to Target, Swiss Miss' new hot chocolate can be purchased at Walmart, where you can get an eight-pack box for $3.80. Various retailers on Amazon are also sporting the item, which is being sold for at least $9.58.
